The First Academy Middle School

2018 Best Private School of Orlando MagazineBlue-Ribbon-Eagle-2013-RGBThe middle school years are marked with much change and growth. At The First Academy, the Middle School team focuses on walking with students and parents through these transitional years. Our desire is to help students focus on their spiritual, academic, artistic, and athletic gifts and talents to help them grow and mature into godly men and women who love and serve their Lord and the global community.

Faculty and staff partner with parents to further facilitate student’s respect (for themselves, others and authority), kindness, honesty, trustworthiness, and loyalty in these foundational years of student life. The Middle School curriculum is designed to challenge students academically while developing their Biblical worldview. Young adolescents undergo rapid physical, intellectual, emotional, and moral growth. They move from concrete to abstract thinking and back again. They deal with tremendous pressure from peers, parents and society, all the while searching for identity, purpose, security, and acceptance. It is our desire to provide an encouraging environment where the Middle School student can grow and mature into one who strives for “Character Before Career, Wisdom Beyond Scholarship, Service Before Self, and Participation as a Way of Life”.

The First Academy Middle School received the National Blue Ribbon Award in 2013 from the U.S. Department of Education for it’s ‘academic excellence’.
